Programming a Cyborg

On 6/25/16 we had a special kind of computer class for 6-8 year-olds: one where kids learned about programming in an interactive, personal and funny way! Cyborg.EAN taught them how to program him to move and do things, and taught the kids how to use laptops to program Python 3 to do math using their first names. They built a paint program called “turtle.” They played with Dash the Wonder Workshop robot. They learned about sequencing, Python coding language, algebra, geometry, technology and so much more! What an amazing class!

I'm a youth services librarian working in the Children's Room at the Pasadena Central Library. I purchase juvenile nonfiction books for all sites, juvenile Spanish books for all sites, and juvenile DVDs for the Central Library. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including Lucha Libros, writing workshops, and STEAM/science programs. I also do 16 weeks of Infant/Toddler Storytimes each year. I love what I do, working with kids of all ages to inspire them to learn and use their curiosity and imaginations. Outside of my work at the library, I am also the author of a book on creative writing activities for kids.
